What if we leafed through an iPad?
The KAIST Institute of Information Technology Convergence in South Korea has just developed a prototype e-reader for iPad that allows readers to leaf through pages like they do with books. Readers can turn the page by sliding their finger across the right side of the book. Skipping 2 or more pages is done by simply laying 2 or more fingers on the iPad. Readers can bookmark pages through vocal recognition technology. Even though the debate between physical books and the various e-readers continues to divide people, I think that anything that can help people read more — be it on a
glass tablet screen or on a page, is a good thing!
